What is happening to the Forums?!
« on: January 16, 2012, 01:55:46 PM »
I have not been a member for that long, but things have definitely changed since I joined.  I remember everyone being friendly to each other and helping each other out.  Now it seems that there are a few people that are just looking for mistakes in peoples' posts so that they can jump down someone's throat and point out his mistakes and start a debate.  Whats the deal?

just looking for mistakes in peoples' posts

It's people's, not peoples'.

Seriously though, there might be some (new?) members that enjoy long drawn out arguments (post count?), so they comment on every possible mistake or discrepancy they find. I find that the best thing is not to engage (unless you're on a post-run), and ignore any such posts.

I guess that since these days, there was a huge increase in n00bs.

I was gonna post something jumping down your throat etc. but I was worried you might not get the joke...
